Image for the poem Not every dream can ever be

Not every dream can ever be

I keep having this dream
Where I've dealt with my horrible past
And this smile is no longer a horrible mask.

I've finally made it
And I'm everything everyone wanted me to be,
Foot of the ground
Everyone stands proud
And I'm no longer a disappoint in their eyes.

I can see my father,
Standing along my mother,
friends, brothers and sister.
They've come to witness me
And capture my moment perfectly.
I see their tears of joy
and I can feel them exude happiness.,

I finally made it,
I've graduated into something beautiful
Something everyone is proud of...

But in this dream I'm no more,
I'm just a ghost witnessing them celebrate my life.

I hear them say things they regret they could have said to me,
I see them finally accept me for being me.
For once they need me,
For once they paying attention to me.

They now realise I've always been special
If only they had paid a little more attention,
I would have grown, I would have blossomed
But in the end,
This is all just a dream
And not every dream can ever be.
